Event Description

Nanotechnology is the identification, application and use of novel behaviour that occurs at the nano-scale to solve real-world problems. The discipline requires a breadth of understanding that is much wider than just the equations and scientific principles that underlie that behaviour. This introductory course gives an overview of the current state of the technology as well as introducing the implications of these new technologies for safety, regulation, innovation. The course will give an overview of the societal and environmental implications of nanotechnology.

The Wider Context of Nanotechnology begins in October and runs for ten weeks. The course comprises two parts: a two-week induction period followed by eight weeks of study. The induction is designed so that participants can confidently maximise their online learning experience.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
